6mm U.S.N. Belt Buckle


#1

Here is one of my Christmas presents. It’s a belt buckle with a 6mm Lee Navy cartridge on it. The headstamp is “U.M.C. 6m/m U.S.N”. Engraved on the buckle is “Veldah Oct. 14, 1908”. Any ideas as to what it commemorates? Who or what is Veldah?

Thanks
Paul

I would google “Veldah”, but my first guess would be a prize for a shooting competition.
